2019 Declarations

As you are able to agree with and own these declarations (1) you will be built up in your most holy faith (Jude 1:20) and (2) you will have a tool to war with that can defeat the enemy at several points in the coming year.

Each year I pray and ask the Lord for declarations to make  (1)  over people within my sphere of influence, for  (2)  those with whom I have some degree of influence and for  (3)  those who desire to claim them and come into agreement with them in prayer. I am making these declarations to those with whom I have a degree of influence (Paul said, “I stay in my metron (Gk.)”—2Cor.10:13-15; “metron” is a sphere of influence.  

These declarations are for (1) prayer points (points that we pray over regularly) and (2) points of agreement (points that we put agreement to in the atmosphere—agreeing with the purposes of God and with one another).  If you desire to be a recipient of and a participant in these declarations, you should  (1)  agree and (2)  pray them through and (3) declare them (cf.Paul in Acts 27-in face of impossibilities and opposing views).  These will come by prayer (and perhaps fasting) and applying ourselves.

Each year individuals, churches and prayer groups join us in prayer and agreement throughout the year over the declarations believing God for His (1)  redemptive intervention in our lives,  (2)  our churches and in  (3)  our nation and for  (4)  enablement for our Lord’s Kingdom purposes.  Each year individuals contact us to tell us about the declarations coming to pass in their lives after they have claimed them and prayed them through the year.

(I received them during seasons of prayer.)


The focus I believe I have been given is to help us bring our focus onto matters in our metron that we can impact. The things we can’t touch with our involvement and influence, we can touch with prayer. 



Job 15:17 – What I have seen I will also declare

Ps 9:11- declare among the people His deeds

Isa 42:9- God promises that before new things spring forth, He will declare them

  48:5-6 – God wants His mercies and gracious acts declared before He does them so it may be known that HE is the God of command & what HE commands, comes to pass
The Kid’s Version was written by Brian and Hannah Sherman who are children’s pastors at Grace International Church Willis,TX.



1. Many will come to regard covenant as a must.
Kid’s Version:  We will honor God and keep our promises
Covenant with God and with one another
We will honor covenant and honor one another
Those who have been caught up in the spirit of breaking covenants and ignoring covenants;
Those who have been robbed of the value and benefits of covenant will regard covenant as a must, will cling to people and opportunities, will repent, will rethink and will rebuild the walls that have been broken down.

Ps.51:7-15, TPT
7 Purify my conscience! Make this leper clean again!  Wash me in your love until I am pure in heart.  8  Satisfy me in your sweetness, and my song of joy will return. The places within me you have crushed will rejoice in your healing touch.  9  Hide my sins from your face; erase all my guilt by your saving grace.  10  Create a new, clean heart within me.  Fill me with pure thoughts and holy desires, ready to please you. 11 May you never reject me!  May you never take from me your sacred Spirit!  12  Let my passion for life be restored, tasting joy in every breakthrough you bring to me. Hold me close to you with a willing spirit that obeys whatever you say.  13  Then I can show to other guilty ones how loving and merciful you are. They will find their way back home to you, knowing that you will forgive them.  14  O God, my saving God, deliver me fully from every sin, even the sin that brought bloodguilt. Then my heart will once again be thrilled to sing the passionate songs of joy and deliverance!  15  Lord God, unlock my heart, unlock my lips, and I will overcome with my joyous praise!


2. This will be a year of being refreshed by the gifts of the Spirit even more than in past years.
Kid’s Version: We will share our gifts like never before.
This year is time to be refreshed in the enabling of the gifts of the Spirit to minister to others and to be refreshed by the gifts ministered to us.
Meetings will be a gift exchange in the body of Christ.

1Cor.12:4-7, NASB
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” 


3. We will be more aware this year.
Kid’s Version: Believe God’s truth over everything else.
The Lord will enable His people to be aware because there will be people attempting to dupe them, con them, use them.
This coming year we will not just slough off “feelings” or a “sense of uneasiness”.
We won’t do some religiously or politically correct thing and chide ourselves for “judging”.
But we will weigh and measure people and circumstances against the unfailing truth of the Bible. 

1Cor. 2:15, Amp–But the spiritual man tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things],

Prov.2:7-11, NLT
7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.  8 He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him.  9 Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go.  10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy.  11 Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.


4. We are prepared for opposition of reinforcements and will not be shaken.
Kid’s Version: Remember that God put us in charge.
I dreamed that three aliens (outer space) were walking confidently along (down a sidewalk) holding hands. Their heads were shaped like world globes. (Attempting to display global-thinking, global authority) They were three colors: Periwinkle, light blue and grayish blue. (Showing a pretentious authority, distorted authority; trying to say “I have authority” but they don’t; attempting to look like they have authority for purpose of getting people into mindset to just accept their agenda)
Where intercessors and local spiritual authority have come to grips in dealing with trouble-making spirits in their region, the enemy is sending in spirits that are alien to that region.
Get ready to learn new tactics, strategy.  Yet you will overcome them with same blood and authority of Jesus.

Lk.10:18-19, TPT—18 Jesus replied, “While you were ministering, I watched Satan topple until he fell suddenly from heaven like lightning to the ground. 19  Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority.

1Pe.3:14, Amp—But even in case you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, [you are] blessed (happy, to be envied). Do not dread or be afraid of their threats, nor be disturbed [by their opposition].


5. There will be shorter mileage to victories.
Kid’s Version: We will not get lost on our way to God’s promises.
There are areas where “mileage” to victory will be much less than in previous situations.
In many cases we have had to go around numerous obstacles, challenges and roadblocks to get to victory.
In the coming year we will discover that we are able to go in more of a straight line to victory thereby cutting out “extra mileage” as we learn more about Kingdom authority and our position in Christ to speak that authority and act in that authority.
The defeating sense of unworthiness will be displaced by a righteous sense of royalty as sons and daughters of the King.

Isa.66:8, Amp —Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Or shall a nation be brought forth in a moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she brought forth her children.

Isa.30:21, Amp—And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.



I will not allow any person nor any adverse circumstance to determine the lifespan of the hope God originally put in me.

Jehovah is the God who does the undoable,
Changes the unchangeable and
Provides the impossible.




24 The Lord bless you and watch, guard, and keep you;

25 The Lord make His face to shine upon and enlighten you and be gracious (kind, merciful, and giving favor) to you;

26 The Lord lift up His [approving] countenance upon you and give you peace (tranquility of heart and life continually).


May the words of Yahveh be alive in you all through this coming year.
May they resonate in your thoughts so that they counsel you, invigorate you, guide you and fill you with hope.
“When you go, they [the words of your parents’ God] shall lead you; when you sleep, they shall keep you; and when you waken, they shall talk with you.” (Prov.6:22, Amp)


May you be able to maintain your confidence in God and His will for you as you face every trial and discouragement. May our Lord help you endure and accomplish all He has designed for you to walk in. 

“Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward. For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.” (Heb.10:35-36, Amp)
